Smile running DOS...Grub problem...

Hey I just uninstalled Linux and now whenever I tr to run windows(XP), before the Windows screen it says 'GRUB' and stops everyhing. I need to get into DOS and type fdisk /mbr but I don't know how to get into DOS...I can't even make a boot disk. Can anyone please help me? Any would be greatly appreciated.

You can remove grub or lilo from the mbr by booting with a Windows 98 boot floppy (at the prompt, type fdisk /mbr), or by using the Windows XP Recovery Console
